Torch’s Vision

Our vision is to see Persian speakers be transformed, discipled, trained and serving the Kingdom of God

Bishop Dr Michael Nazir-Ali

My prayer is that Torch Ministries will be truly blessed by our Father in heaven as they seek to bring wholeness out of brokenness, good news in the midst of tragedy and communities of hope where there is fear and despair.


Iran Today

Nowadays, Iran and Iranians are in a critical situation, both in the Middle East and across the globe. God has an extraordinary plan for this country and its people. Iranians were an instrument in God’s hand in the Bible and they could be used again by God to develop His kingdom in the Middle East region. Iranians today are seen worldwide as the Muslim people most open to hearing and responding to the Gospel. More have become Christians today than during the previous 1,300 years put together. Moreover, Iran has the fastest growing house churches in the world according to Operation World.

Our Ministries



Trauma & 



Women are the most vulnerable group in Iranian society today; many have experienced social trauma and domestic abuse. They need qualified help and training to deal with their personal and marriage issues rooted in these experiences, which prevent them from growing deeply in Christ and becoming His mature disciples.  Our counsellor is
qualified professionally and is a member of BACP-UK (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). We offer Biblical Christ-centered counselling
as well as  trauma counselling to Persian women and couples through the internet, online, FaceTime phone and in person one-to-one meetings.

Leadership & Discipleship   Training

We hold ongoing seminars and workshops online and in-person to train and equip these churches, church leaders, pastors and disciple-makers on various biblical and contextualized training courses with discussions, fellowship and prayer times. All our resources and teaching materials are a combination of Biblical discipleship, Christian doctrine and theology, spiritual formation, counselling issues and cultural subjects that apply to the context. Our aim is to train and equip them to become mature Christ-like, transformed and serving the Kingdom of God in order to equip and train others within their local church/community.

Strengthen & Equip

Local Churches

We hold conferences and meetings online and in-person to teach, preach the Word of God, Christian doctrine and discipleship to Christian believers to strengthen them in their Christian faith, commitment, and relationship to our Lord Jesus as well as preaching the Gospel to non-believers.

These conferences and meetings aim to strengthen and mobilize local churches, small Christian communities and to encourage those who are scattered to inspire and strengthen their faith. We collaborate in this work with Iranian and non-Iranian local churches from any denomination, Christian communities and ministries who work with refugees.
